Costco is getting in the iPad preorder game like everyone else, for $299.99 preorder, shipping on 10/1/21. Where this can potentially becomes a slicker deal is if you're planning to order 2 (1 of each color) and haven't used your $50 off $500 like me. So total will look like this if you're ordering 2:
$599.98 +$50 coupon = $549.98 before taxes
That comes out to around $275 per iPad before taxes, $25 cheaper than most current deal. As I've said, slickness will depend on that $50 coupon. If you haven't used yours, you can initiate chat on Costco website and they should issue you a new one.
I should add that price offer will only last til 10/1 and limit only 1 per customer now but you can add 1 of each color. And I believe Costco has one of the most generous return policy, 90 days. So in theory you could buy and wait til mid December to see if there's a better deal.
Back in stock.
